I had three hair transplant surgeries and now I shave my head because of the results. I like the shaved head look but the scar from the donar are sticks out like a soar thumb. How can I remove the scar or make it les noticeable? Will laser scar removal help?? Is there any solutions to my problem?
Sometimes one can address scars on the back of the head, and I have managed such scars on a few patients. The laser is not a magical instrument and I doubt it would help you with removing the linear hair transplant scar in the donor area unless it was elevated and the laser was used as a treatment to flatten it. Dermabrasion can accomplish the same thing. If the scar is heaped up (keloid like) then the use of steroid injections have value, but for a flat scar, neither the laser, dermabrasion, nor lasers will help. The treatment of acne scars with laser sare another thing altogether. There, laser resurfacing works on some people, but lasers can be used in many ways. Removing the scars from a hair transplant in the back of the head is not one of the things that lasers can offer help on.
